What is a pill box,A pill box is also called a pill organizer and a pill box. A pill box or pill case is a multi-compartment pill taking aid, generally used to store and organize predetermined doses of medication, to aid memory and to facilitate people taking their medication on time.
Why do people use pill boxes? The majority of people who participated in our research said they use pill boxes or pillboxes because they are convenient and they make it easier for people to remember to take their medications, especially for some older adults. Some seniors take many different types of medications, and pill boxes help to organize them and simplify the complex medication process. Some people also say that taking bottles and jars of medication on a trip can be a hassle and take up a lot of space, so using a pill box will make travel more convenient, and the cleverly designed pill box itself is also a fashion statement and can better protect one's privacy.
In our research we have found that many people are concerned about how long pills can be kept in the pill box. Generally medicines are kept for 2 weeks without losing their medicinal properties, and many pill boxes now come with a seal that effectively protects them from moisture. As long as you follow the storage specifications for each pill and place the box properly, and do not leave the box in a humid or direct sunlight place such as a bathroom, windowsill, etc., they should be fine.
There are many kinds of pill boxes on the market, and the one that suits you is the best, so how should we choose a pill box? Depending on your own reality, for example, if you take your medication 4 times a day, you can use a pill box for a week, which corresponds to the need for 4 compartments per day (morning, noon, evening and before going to bed). This way you only need to fill the pill box a week in advance and it will last for 7 days. You can also buy a single day pill box with 4 compartments, you just need to fill it up before you go out and take it with you to meet your medication needs for the day, which is more convenient and you don't have to worry about the effects of moisture and other effects of the medication. Of course, if you are one of those who need to take medication for a long time, you can choose a larger pill box, such as a month of the kind, you do not have to worry about it is too huge and inconvenient to carry, this pill box is generally divided into 31 compartments, you only need to take the corresponding time compartment to go out, the rest you can put them at home, compact and convenient. If you have a poor memory, you can also choose an electronic pill box, which comes with a reminder function that can help you remember the time. It is very important to choose a pill box that suits your needs, and I hope these suggestions will provide you with some help.
